It appears Ne-Yo’s wife, Cyrstal Renay, has finally had it with the singer’s alleged infidelity throughout their marriage.
Renay took to Instagram to detail what she believes to be an 8-year affair with multiple women, all of whom allegedly had unprotected intercourse with the artist.
Renay began, “8 years of lies and deception. 8 years of unknowingly sharing my life and husband with numerous of women who sell their bodies to him unprotected..every last one of them!”
She goes on to share how she felt after finding out and her decision to step away from their marriage.
“To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement. To ask me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane,” she wrote.
She said that while her time with Ne-Yo was “wasted years and heartache,” the best thing she received from the marriage was her “three beautiful children.”
She goes on to add, “If someone can’t love you the way you deserve then it’s up to you to love yourself. With no hate in my heart I wish him nothing but the best.”
In response to Renay’s statement, Ne-Yo took to Twitter and wrote:
“For the sake of our children, my family and I will work through our challenges behind closed doors. Personal matters are not meant to be addressed and dissected in public forums. I simply ask that you please respect me and my family’s privacy at this time.”

Speaking to Essence in January, Ne-Yo claimed that the pandemic had really saved his marriage, as the singer had previously filed for divorce in February 2020, before later reconciling in June of that year.
He said to Essence, “[The quarantine] made us face the conflict head on and what that did is basically strengthen us because now, I don’t have to pull punches when I talk to you. You know exactly where I stand. I know exactly where you stand and through that we’ve decided to keep going and it’s a more genuine feel to what it is we’re doing now. It’s still a learning process, of course.”
The split comes just months after remarrying in April and a year after welcoming their third child, Isabella Rose, together.
